Perona Farms Wedding

I thought it appropriate, in the light of the historic passing of same sex marriage rights in NY that I share with you some photos of my most recent wedding.  I shot this wedding with the fabulous Laura Billingham.

Our grooms, Rob and Vinnie were so much fun.  I can not remember ever laughing so much while working.  The entire bridal party were fun and entertaining.  It was like hanging out with my friends.

The wedding took place at Perona Farms in Andover, New Jersey.   Tucked away in the hills, this event hall offered many natural backgrounds for photography.  I loved having the option of forest, lake, farm, or gazebo.  From the photos you would think we spent hours shooting and trucking all over NJ.  In truth we walked a big circle of about a 1/4 mile and got every beautiful shot.

A Night at the Carousel

Mercy Center Corporation Sisters Academy held a fundraiser to benefit their school on May 21st at the Asbury Park Carousel Building.  I was there to run a photo booth and shoot some candid pictures of the event.  The building is incredibly impressive!   I spend a lot of time at the New Jersey shore and, surprisingly, it was my first time to the Asbury Park boardwalk.  When we pulled down the street and saw the giant beautiful green building it took my breath away. Even more picturesque was the stilt walker in front of the building greeting the guests.  The combination made a beautiful scene.

Inside the building was a catered affair.  The entertainment featured my PHOTO BOOTH and the band New Life Crisis — they were FANTASTIC!!  At one point I thought U2 had made an appearance.  They got the crowd singing and dancing and really made the night HUMMMM.  I created a video montage with some of the pictures I took and used New Life Crisis’ original song “She’s a Superstar” as the sound track.  It seemed an appropriate song for making superstars at the Sister’s academy.
